Sightseeing of the Pink City – Jaipur : Jaipur, the City of Victory, a land of natural beauty and great history is chaotic and congested, but still has a habit of tickling travellers pink. Stunning hilltop forts, glorious palaces and brilliant bargain-filled bazaars, are the favourite spots for tourists. Many old and neglected palaces and forts in Jaipur have been converted into heritage hotels.

Day trip to Pushkar :  A sacred town for the Hindus, boasting of the one and only temple dedicated to Brahma. It is a sleepy; lakeside settlement with Ghats, a dip in whose waters and worship in temple ensure salvation. The mystical water is also believed to cure skin diseases, making Pushkar the Lourdes of the East.
Sightseeing of New Delhi : The capital city of India and locally called Dilli is the main arrival point for overseas tourists. A day tour takes you to Red Fort, Jama Masjid, Humayun's Tomb and Qutub Minar. More imporant places like Lotus Temple and Akshardham Temple can also be added along with a shopping trip to make your Delhi tour complete.

Visit to TAJ MAHAL : It is the epitome of Mughal art and regarded as one of the wonders of the world. An "elegy in marble" or some say an expression of a "dream" , Taj Mahal (meaning Crown Palace) is a Mausoleum of queen Mumtaz Mahal.
